... The Jingle Belles - JB-12:15 challenge to use either RED or GREEN was too much to resist. You've seen the set of Christmas Trees in green, and now here is the co-ordinating set in red. Once again, they are going to be submitted to the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card April Challenge.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Nutcracker Sweet, Frame-It, Complements of the Season
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black, Lady Bug
Spellbinders: Ironworks Motifs (S5-059), Petit Ovals Lg (S4-138) #1, Labels 10 (S5-022) # 4 & 5
Accessories: Clear embossing powder; Card and gems from stash
I decided to play around with the layout on the red set. The first one I made was the card on the right. I decided to make a group of Christmas trees and layer them onto gold. Then I made the very CAS card with the tiny tree and frame, colouring the star and adding some bling to tie it in with the first card. I finished off with the white and red card - which is my favourite - simply cutting mats and stamping in red. Here are the individual cards
I'm really pleased with this challenge - I've added six cards to my 2012 Christmas card stash. Still lots more to make, but at least I've started!
I'm off to have a glass of wine with Mum. Before I go - thank you to everyone who left such lovely words about Mum - she is fully recovered and now that the weather is a bit cooler, she's really enjoying herself again! I'm off to a craft class tomorrow morning at my local shop - Stampeddler. I am taking a class with Lynell Harlow of Dreamweaver Stencils - she will be teaching a new technique using pearlescent embossing paste and metallic F/X mica powders to create molten magic images! I can't wait to play!! See you soon.
That really is all for tonight.
